Going On a Date Without Breaking the Bank

That includes dinner, a movie, and the opportunity cost of time spent on a date. I’m not sure I buy the “cost of time” part, but I agree that the whole “dinner and a movie” routine can get pricey pretty quickly. That’s why I tend to suggest other activities. My go-to activity for a cheap date? 1. One of dating coach Sandy Weiner’s favorite low-cost first dates was going to a museum in New York City. 2.

What could be more romantic than a picnic blanket, the great outdoors, and some home-cooked finger food (or sandwiches from a local eatery)? 5. Even if you can’t get to a hiking trail, city walks can be fun, too. 6. Forget five-star dining! Relationship Rules. Human beings crave intimacy, need to love and be loved.
